Question about Nikon Coolpix S3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The camera powers on fine, although it has a black screen with no image. What type problem is this and is it fixable or not. When I go to look at the pictures I took while the display screen was blacked out the screen remains with no image. I just turned on my camera the other day and I can still acces my menu, I can see the camera details in the corner and even view old pictures but when I turn it on eveything else is black! I can't take any new pictures because of the black screan. Is this fixable??? I think its just past its warrenty..any solutions???

    I have the same problem. Never had a problem with the camera before. I have tried to download new software from Nikon, but could not find any. I have remvoed the battery, taken out the memory card and reset all settings to default with no success.

Lens stuck


Yes it is fixable. if there is a friction in the movement of the lense cover blades this happens. If it is due to fine sand or dust try using a soft brush with a rubber pump fitted at the back so that it cen blow the sand off the camera. The problem is not that big for going for a new camera.

If you can play back images ok ( colour & resolution normal ) but in capture mode you have no image then the CCD sensor in your camera is faulty. Replace.
